Horse racing tips and best bets for Doncaster, Haydock, Leicester, Ripon, Sandown and Wolverhampton


Next week Punchestown will take center stage later this month and our man Garry Owen brings you his tips from all the UK meetings every day.

KITTY’S LIGHT (3.32) can cap a terrific season for Christian Williams by lifting the Bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown.

The chaser showed his liking for this tough Grade 3 when a close second to Potterman a year ago.

The six-year-old looked better than ever when chinned by Chirico Vallis on his return at Chepstow.

He soon improved again when chasing home Fusil Raffles in the Grade 2 Charlie Hall at Wetherby.

The gelding then went off the boil with some lackluster performances in the middle of the campaign.

The son of Nathaniel hit back with a good second to Cap Du Nord in the Coral Trophy at Kempton.




He ran another stormer when giving Win My Wings most resistance in the Scottish National at Ayr.

The stayer should still be in peak form so he can turn the tables on his stablemate at these weights.

The Novices’ Championship Final Hurdle is brutally competitive but I’m backing HEAD LAW (1.50).

Jonjo O’Neill’s charge built on some promising efforts when outpointing Bucephalus at Huntingdon.

However, the gelding really announced himself when slamming the useful Smith’s Bay at Warwick.

The five-year-old oozed class again when absolutely bolting up from Pay The Woman at Stratford.

The son of Network looks a proper Graded-performer so he can triumph for his shrewd connections.

MISTER FISHER (2.25) can claim a trappy renewal of the Oaksey Chase for Nicky Henderson.

The eight-year-old put in another career best when slamming Eldorado Allen at Kempton in January.

The gelding produced another fair shift when fourth to Fakir D’oudairies in the Grade 1 Ascot Chase.




However, he never posed any threat when pulled up in the Melling Chase at Aintree two weeks ago.

The son of Jeremy retains plenty of talent so he can summarize winning ways in these calmer waters.

GREENETEEN (3.30) can power to his fourth success at this venue in the Celebration Chase.

Paul Nicholls’ star booked his place at the top table when hacking up in this Grade 1 12 months ago.

The gelding boosted his reputation when routing Hitman in the Tingle Creek back here in December.

He then ran as well as expected when second to the mighty Shiskin in the Wayward Lad at Kempton.

The eight-year-old suffered an eye injury when well-beaten in the Dublin Chase at Leopardstown.

The chaser is now back to full fitness so he should make a triumphant return to his favorite track.

The Champion Trainer can double-up with MCFABULOUS (4.07) in the bet365 Select Hurdle.



Smart Ruler (centre), racing here at Musselburgh in 2014, was one of the four horses who died

The gelding showed real signs of a revival when a fine third behind Epatante in the Aintree Hurdle.

The eight-year-old should be primed so he can account for a strong field back in Grade 2 company.

BRIEF AMBITION (4.40) can extend Fergal O’Brien’s winning run in the Josh Gifford Novices’ Chase.

The gelding looked a smart recruit to fences when hammering Sopran Thor on debut at Kempton.

He soon confirmed that impression when decisively denying Ballinsker in a warm event at Ludlow.

The eight-year-old made it three when hosing up from the talented Muckamore at the same venue.

There is plenty more to come from this classy type who can defy a well-earned 6lb hike up in class.

Gary Moore likes a winner here so I’m on FIFTY BALL (5.15) in the bet365 Handicap Hurdle.

The gelding got back on track with a superb second to West To The Bridge over track and trip.

The seven-year-old soon put that effort to good use when brushing aside Sizable Sam at Ascot.

The son of Cokoriko remains well-treated on his old form so he can make light of a 3lb penalty.

SILVER SAMURAI (2.05) looks lethal for Marco Botti in the Shevington Handicap at Haydock.



32Red also spend a lot of money sponsoring horse racing in the UK

The gray was a close second to the progressive Challet on his last Turf outing at York in September.

I have kept up the good work when just held by Epsom Faithfull on the Kempton all-weather recently.

The gelding should be fighting fit so he can take advantage of a reasonable mark back in this sphere.

ARATUS (2.45) can reign supreme for Clive Cox in the King Richard III Stakes at Leicester.

The gelding began last season with a commanding defeat of Blades Equal in a hot Doncaster novice.

He improved again when cosily denying the promising Sunset Bay on his handicap bow at Newbury.

The four-year-old then showed class and guts to down Escobar in better company at Goodwood.

There is plenty more to come from this pacey type who can add this Listed clash to his growing CV.
